About the author:
The son of a sharecropper (not really), Mark Wooden has actively pursued the dream of being a Creative since his epic kindergarten work, "Ne-Ne the Vampire Panda."
He draws inspiration from "Buffy the Vampire Slayer" and "Blade," decades of Batman and "X-Men" comic books and conspiracy epics "24" and "The X-Files."
He'd be remiss if he didn't mention the influence of a certain Frank Miller-created assassin named Elektra.
Mark mines his two decades of experiences in live entertainment to instill humanity into the vampires, demons, werewolves, sorcerers and other creatures of his "Shadowdance" urban fantasy saga. The novels allow readers to confront the evil that men and monsters do from the comfort of a book.
"By Virtue Fall: A Song of the Shadowdance" is the first novel in the "Shadowdance" urban fantasy saga.
Look into the shadows and see horror in action.

A Song of the Shadowdance
Mark Wyndel Wooden
Vampire assassin Adriana Dupré has nothing left.
After being manipulated into slaughtering nearly all of her family line, now she only lusts for two things: finding what remains of her family, namely her sister-turned-vampire, and avenging their deaths.
The one person with the information she needs? Sorcerer and Hollywood bad-boy Dwyer Strathan. All Adriana has to do in exchange is retrieve two relics, known as the Vyntari shards.
But the path to the shards is not an easy one.
Adriana must journey from the soulless glamour of modern day Los Angeles to the seedy underworld of Berlin and engage in battles against vengeful werewolves, a trio of warrior sorcerers tasked with protecting the Vyntari shards, and other supernatural creatures bent on keeping her at bay.
With each encounter, Adriana is drawn deeper into the supernatural underworld's struggle for control of the shards, a struggle long hidden from human eyes -
Adriana must ultimately decide if her desire for revenge is worth giving Strathan unimaginable power... the power to destroy the world.
